Description

    H.P. Lovecraft. The Outsider and Others. Collected by August Derleth and Donald Wandrei. Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1939.

    First edition of the first collection of Lovecraft's writings; a rare and important first book and first publication printed by Arkham House, one of only 1268 copies printed. Octavo. 553 pages.

    Publisher's black cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. Very light rubbing at spine head and tail, as well as at corner tips, but overall a very nice, fine copy. Dust jacket bears some creases at spine head and tail but is otherwise crisp with bright, unfaded artwork.

    Accompanied by two letters and one postcard signed by August Derleth regarding the book's publication, as well as a photocopy of the pre-publication notice. Terrific association pieces with this book of classic Lovecraft tales! From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
